9. What Brides & Grooms Said...

“Anyone debating whether or not to do a destination wedding, we emphatically implore you to do so. We showed up to our wedding and everything was perfect. It was on their rooftop terrace, with the deep blue ocean as the backdrop.
We had about 70 guests, and everyone agreed it was one of the funnest weddings they’ve been to.  The food was exquisite, and the DJ was very, very good. We can honestly say this was the best wedding we’ve ever been to, and that’s great because it happened to be our wedding. We can’t recommend Sandos Cancun enough for anyone looking to have their wedding in Cancun.” – Chevy A. 

Bride and groom Live Aqua Mexico

“My husband and I just got married at this resort! It was absolutely beautiful and the staff was truly amazing! We had the best weekend and our wedding was so beautiful and beyond our wildest dreams! This venue was perfect for a 50 person wedding! The resort is a great size because it is small enough that everyone is able to hang out and find each other, but big enough that you have plenty of pools, restaurants and places to go! The spa was also incredible! I highly recommend this resort for a vacation or a wedding!” – srap123
